My wife LOVES crepes!! So, when we heard from a friend that there is a great creperie in Hong Kong, we were both excited and eager to give it a try. After climbing myriad number of steps and getting lost along the way, we finally arrived at 'Fleur de Sel' in Hong Kong's Soho district.
It was early, the restaurant was empty and we were greeted by our waiter ' Roman' from Quebec!! According to him, the French chef actually worked in the kitchen of Robouchon a Galera in Macau before decided to open up his little gem in Hong Kong.
We had one savory and two sweet crepes:
- Crepe Bourguinnone with Escargot, Spinach, Bacon, Cheese and Cream
- Crepe Poire with Caramelized Pear and Lavender, Creme Brulee Ice Cream and Chocolate Sauce
- Special newly introduced crepe of Caramel sauce and 'Crispy' Vanilla Ice Cream!!
The crepes were delcious and authentic with the savory version using buckwheat flour prepared on authentic cooking sevices and utensils!
After so many Chinese meals these few weeks, it was a refreshing change of scenery!!
